Word Decipher
« on: Friday 08 October 21 17:32 BST (UK) »
We are trying to figure out which insurance companies my 2nd great grandfather worked for. We know he worked for Empire Marine insurance until they went bust.

But on his 1901 Cencus he is retired but there is a line that says retired insurance agent and below it there is something crossed out that says retired from .....?? and that is the word we cannot seem to figure out.

Any help would be great.
